In 2015, BREC launched it's very own Wi-Fi service to be offered in parks around East Baton Rouge Parish. BREC Open is a Wi-Fi service offering park visitors the choice of 3 different packages:

  • Basic - free serivce that has no download limits but has slower speeds and is limited to two hours per day
  • Premium 4 hour - a $5 service option that lifts the speed and priority restrictions allowing visitors the additional bandwith requred to hold video conferences, watching streaming video, and download larger files
  • Premium 2GB - a 30pday service that allows 2GB of downloaded/uploaded content or 30 days of Premium Access, whichever comes first. Premium packages are tied to a specific device and allow Premium Access at all Wi-Fi locations.

Customers can purchase Premium packages securely through their mobile devices with a credit card, debit card, gift card, or a prepaid card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, Discover, and Diners Club) or soon through the purchase of a voucher from most BREC locations using cash, check or credit card.
